Ballarat transforms into a Winter Wonderland every July as part of the Ballarat Winter Festival.
One highlight is a visit to Sovereign Hill and experience the magical Winter Wonderlights: Christmas in July, June 29-July 21. Sovereign Hill’s Main Street will come alive with light shows and festive decorations. There will be kids’ activities, faux snowfalls and Christmas trees during the day, and grand light projections on the historic building facades after dark. During Christmas in July it snows four times a day! Join them for a snow dance. Book tickets HERE.
You can also stay right at Sovereign Hill’s very own 4-star (self rated) hotel where the heart of the action with the excitement and intrigue of the Gold Rush only metres from your doorstep. Great value accommodation and entertainment are available, and during opening hours dining options include two eateries, three bars and the famous Hope Bakery. Spend the day at their multi-award winning museum and enjoy a sumptuous Christmas meal before experiencing Sovereign Hill’s spectacular Winter Wonderlights. Accomodation fast running out so book HERE now.
This also makes the perfect base for families and couples wanting to explore this historic city and the wider region. Unlimited free parking on-site.
